I have some backup tasks scheduled that get missed when the machine is not turned on.  Is there a way to have XP realize they were missed and run it when the machine starts up?

You can turn on the notification of missed task by creating the following registry command

System Key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\SchedulingAgent]
Value Name: NotifyOnTaskMiss
Data Type: REG_DWORD (DWORD Value)
Value Data: (0 = no notify, 1 = notify)

This will give you the option to re-run any missed tasks.
